We mostly use LinkedIn because pretty much everyone is on it so it’s convenient. It’s easy and fast. I don’t really have any complaints.

We have Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. We don’t have Instagram. We’re very active on Twitter and LinkedIn. We have basic campaigns across Facebook and Google to maintain SEO. We have a content team. We don’t have a scheduling tool or automation. We want to be able to create custom timely Twitter content.

LinkedIn is very effective for HR and sales. It’s even better for sales in my experience. We have a dual HQ in New York and our global center, Israel, but hiring in Israel is very different. We’re phasing in an in-house HR function in Israel, so eventually the entire HR process will be managed by Israel and partially outsourced in the US if necessary.

LinkedIn - Best Job Boards Tools for Startups

LinkedIn is a professional social media network that helps you connect to a massive pool of potential employees and recruiters. For the individual user, it’s a wonderful way to build a network in your industry and hunt for new opportunities. For companies, it’s a way to find new talent. Many businesses subscribe to the LinkedIn Recruiter package, which helps them navigate the vast ocean of candidates with advanced searches, automatic candidate tracking and unlimited profile views. The network itself contains 300 million members in over 200 countries, which makes it easily the largest pool of talent there is.

How startups use LinkedIn?

LinkedIn’s massive talent pool is a great resource for companies of all sizes, but the Recruiting tool itself can be a little expensive--particularly if you need to purchase multiple licenses--making it a better fit for larger companies with more resources.

How much does LinkedIn cost?

LinkedIn itself is a free service, and they offer a free month of their advanced LinkedIn Recruiter Lite package, but once the trial expires it costs $119.95/month or $1,199.40/year. The full LinkedIn Recruiter is even more powerful but doesn’t publicize its pricing.
